Switching to the defensive side of the ball, Calais Campbell could be a one man wrecking crew for this defense. Honestly, there are a lot of potential players on this defense that could cause havoc for Miami’s atrociously terrible offensive line. But, we can only pick one player, and Campbell is the guy.
Campbell is definitely not the overwhelming force that he was a few seasons ago, but he can still get the job done when it comes to rushing the passer and clogging up running lanes. He’s second on the team with 4 TFL and can generate good pressure from his defensive end position.
The selection of Campbell on this list is more of an indictment on this offensive line than just about anything else. It’s clear that the biggest flaw for this Dolphins team is their offensive line, which is one of the worst in the league by a pretty large margin. Miami struggled to give Jacoby Brissett any time to throw last week against a bad Houston Texans team and ended up getting starter Tua Tagovailoa injured twice already and we still have games to play.
Campbell isn’t the most threatening player on this Ravens defense, but Miami will need to win one on one matchups with him, since I expect the Ravens will blitz like there is no tomorrow. If Miami can’t beat Campbell one on one, while the rest of the line focuses on the Ravens coming from all directions like a bad Alfred Hitchcock movie, then this team doesn’t stand a chance.
